  • Barry was quite the character. My ex-husband, Al Stawychny, played with him in the Cellar Dwellers band. I guess in those days I would have been considered a groupie. I’m so saddened to read his obituary. My condolences go out to his wife and family. RIP Barrie. Linda - Posted by: Linda Demski (Stawychny) (Friend ) on: Oct 27, 2022

  • I am so very sorry to hear of Barrie's passing. He was one of my brother Wayne's best friends. Barrie was a talented drummer in the Cellar Dwellers band which to me as a young lad just added to his already cool personality. Fond memories of Barrie and his friends over at our house to party with a row of BSA motorcycles parked in the driveway. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Barrie. - Posted by: Mark Fritzler (Friend ) on: Sep 25, 2022
